Title The Sabbath - A Day of Rest
Description he would pull a hair from his head and check the test he could tell when the razor was ready for use. He would then lather up his face with a brush and soap from the shaving mug, Daddy was very efficient in shaving his face, with never a razor cut. Before we went to bed, our Sunday clothes were readied for tomorrow. Clean, freshly-ironed shirts were placed on hangers. Our pressed suits were also made readily accessible. It was time now for our regular Saturday night baths. The reservoir on the large coal stove was full of hot water. Daddy had brought in the kidney-shaped copper boiler which was then filled with water and heated on top of the cook stove. I brought in the galvanized wash tub. Leo and I were accorded first dibs at the bath. With a large pan, we dipped hot water into the tub, Cold water was added to get the bath to the right temperature. Leo and I rolled into bed feeling clean, refreshed and ready for the best sleep since last Saturday, Morning came. We arose, did our chores, dress up in our best Sunday clothes. We felt dignified as we donned our white shirts, blue ties and navy blue suits. We were proud of our newly-polished shoes. The morning was pleasant as Daddy, Mama, Leo and I took the six-block walk to the Mt, Pleasant South Ward Chapel. Sunday School always started "promptly at ten in the morning." Once inside the chapel we took our seats in the section reserved for eleven-, twelve-, and thirteen-year-olds o Mama and Daddy took their places in the parents' class section. The owner of our butcher shop, Harry Erickson, was superintendent of the Sunday School and conducted the opening exercises, V.e sang "Welcome, welcome, Sabbath morning. Now we rest from every care. . .Holy Sabbath, day of prayer." The opening prayer was given by a neighbor boy who was about sixteen years old. 12
